Two Great Felt Workshops Coming Up!

SDA member, Tricia Stackle is offering two wonderful workshops in Sculptural Felt and Felted Clothing.  This is a great opportunity to take your felt to a whole new level.

Feltmaking is an exciting media growing in popularity both in the art, craft, and design fields due to its transformative properties and delightful tactility. I have been working with the ancient, renewable resource, wool, in my own design and art practice for a few years now and am excited to be able to offer two exciting workshops to share my experience with feltmaking and teach new techniques in both sculpture and fashion to interested and eager artists and craftspeople looking to learn about this media for the first time or as experienced makers.
